London Mining Network is pleased to announce the launch of our latest report, Martial Mining.
Martial Mining exposes the links between mining, the international arms trade, and warfare. Across the globe, these destructive forces go hand in hand, from the minerals needed to produce weapons to the military force needed to secure and police mines themselves.
To mark International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict, LMN will be holding an online launch event on 6 November. At this event (to be hosted on Zoom), researcher and author of the report Daniel Selwyn will present and discuss the key findings. There will also be a panel talk with other activists & campaigners working on the arms trade and environment.
